I've got an Astrophysics degree, inspired by my love of Star Trek... only to learn that most of the 'science' in Star Trek is so far off the wall, it's not even funny.
i seen recently we have developed a cloaking device, a theoritcal tractor beam and warp drive may be scientifically possible.

the cloaking device- http://www.popsci.com/scitech/articl...loaking-device

a tractor beam- http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/0...n_1546482.html

warp drive- http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/0...n_1890679.html


not to mention all the little side tek- padds (ipad anyone?). communicators (bluetooth/cell phones) real working tricorders etc etc.

granted that most of the "science" terms and stuff they use is just filler, but i do like to think we'll get there someday.
